Does your tires hit the bumper or does it stick out far enough?  Looks good.  Good to see some other Craftsman's in the forums and not just a bunch of Murrays. (this from someone with 2 Murray's

Wow, that diff slips bad, even with mud lites.  Doc's Fugazi has mud lights and a locked diff and he hasn't broken anything, you might be able to figure something out.

well the front end is locked so once i flex it up a bit with suspension i will stop getting hung up.

Doc also has an 820 in his. those are much more durable

Nice romp videos with a variety of terrain and your shepard is your rompin' buddy, so cool. It makes total sense that since you have a rigid front end, once you go on uneven terrian you only have 2 or 3 tires making good contact with the ground so you're going to be spinning one of the rear wheel a lot. Knowing you I'm sure that you have some cool suspension plans in the works to fix that.

Yup i am planning a good suspension , it will be similar to the murray but even more beefy.

Took it out for a romp the other day, rode for 30 min, spent an hour getting it out.Also built a heavy duty bumper so now i can lift the rear end out easier . The rack is just mocked up cause i cant decide if i want to rack it or not. Whadda yall think about putting a rack on it ?

Rack looks kinda cool. Like the rear bumper too, simple but effective. That's the thing I don't like about mudding is it can be more work to get it out than it's worth. I've only been that stuck a couple of times, but it's no fun at all. That's why I stick to crawling and stuff a little bit more than hitting the mud.

I really like the way the rear rack looks, but it looks like it would make it pretty hard to get to the gas tank.

i didn't even try filming it because i hitting the mud hard and everything was covered , so i would have been filming a dirty camera lens the whole time. I got it stuck, then moved it a couple feet , then stuck again,. I repeated that for an hour so the footage wouldn't be the greatest anyway

The rack would need to be out a little farther or i could chop some rack out and weld it back in but over out of the way . Then the gas tank cap would have good access i think, i really would love some storage on it but i kinda like it with and without the rack

When you put the rack on it looks more like an atv and not a tractor so I hear you Biggas.

i might just put a removable cargo box on the rear bumper , then it can still look like a mower.

Well I like the look of a wheeler, so I think that NellyBelle is gonna get a rack. Especially with the way it's set up, there is no storage what so ever.

Yeah it does, and I like some tractors that look like tractors, the Craftsman GTs look good as tractors. But they make good atv style things too.
